I got all of my strips sewn together and cut out and I was so anxious to lay it out that I've been working on that the last half hour! So excited! I'll post pictures soon - tomorrow maybe. I do believe it's going to be a beauty - I can't like it too much, it's a gift!
I didn't get my sewing machine working yet, but my darling friend, Annie lent me one of hers. If she hadn't, I'm sure my motivation to work on the quilt would be nearly extinct.
